Airmail services to certain destinations subject to delay

2020.12.24

Owing to insufficient air traffic capacity provided by airlines, it may take extra time as shown in the table below in waiting for air allotment to convey airmail items (including Speedpost items) to certain destinations, even though Hongkong Post has completed the handling procedures after posting. In addition, local postal operations at the destinations are still under the influence of the pandemic and delays in mail delivery are expected.
